The Rolling Stones had me from the cowbell intro on this one.
“Honky Tonk Women” remains one of the Rolling Srones signature and most popular songs. Released during the summer of 1969, it topped the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart for four weeks.
It contained one of Keith Richards best guitar performances and when you add it Mick Taylor’s later overdubs, it was a guitar lovers delight.
It was also their last chart single in the United States on the London Label before they switched to their own Rolling Stone label.
